This is great for an afternoon snack. You can keep the blended fruit in a tupperware and have it on hand to mix into anything.
1/2 cup of frozen pineapple
1/2 cup of frozen mango
1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 cup of frozen peaches
Put all the frozen fruit into a bowl of water and in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes to thaw them out a little. Then, blend all the fruit in the blender and strain if necessary. Sometimes the peaches and pineapple leave strings that can be a booger to get out of your brackets and back teeth. I would stay away from dark berries since the seeds are nearly impossible to get out and the dark colors can stain your teeth. Take the fruit blend and mix into your favorite vanilla ice cream, plain or vanilla yogurt, small curd cottage cheese (if not completely wired or banded shut), or pudding. My favorite is vanilla yogurt by far. I also like to mix it in either oatmeal or Cream of Wheat for breakfast. If you make a large batch of the fruit, then this is a really quick snack to keep on hand when you are really hungry and don't have much time.
